Revised Edition

  I finished cutting the glass, got it all foiled and took pictures like I normally do.  Sometimes I see things in the photo that I don't notice on the work table.  The two crosses got lost in the green hills.

  I took out the upper row of green glass and put in brown mountains. That added a lot of depth to the overall picture and was much better contrast for the two crosses.

So here they are all together, more or less.

Back In The Saddle

   We're back from Montana and I got to cut some glass. But only for about half of the day. The weeds grow at a monstrous rate this time of year, and were threatening to overtake everything. Still, I got quite a bit done and can finish cutting tomorrow.

Consider The Lilies

     "Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow. They toil not, neither do they spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon was dressed as one of these."
     I am here to testify. These particular lilies didn't do the work. They WERE the work. But they are done now, and I'm glad to have them.

Looks Can Be Deceiving

  Did I really cut glass for six hours today? Yes I did, but looks can be deceiving. It doesn't seem like I made much progress.

  I am estimating one more full day to finish the lilies, then two more days to finish cutting the rest of the panel.  Tomorrow is go-to-town day though, so no glass tomorrow.

Earth And Sky

   I managed to cut out the rest of the yellow border, the sky, and began the greenery at the base. I was hoping to get the lilies started. Not today!

A Light Peek

   Just got the center panel off the workbench. Here's a peek with the light behind it.I'm pretty excited!

   I also was able to lay out the third panel for this window today. I managed to cut out part of the border, but after a bit, the glass just wasn't cutting correctly. Time to quit for the day.

I Zinc I Like it.

   Foil is on, StrongLine is in, and the soldering has begun. Today I tack soldered the first side and installed the zinc came frame. Tomorrow I'll finish the soldering and start cleaning it up.

Still Foiling

   I foiled for several hours today. I love how the foil brings out the dimensional aspect of the cross and burial cloth. I should be able to finish foiling and applying Strong Line tomorrow.
